When I Fall

Ice Storm 2016 ~ Photo by Patrice

When I fall
I must get up
Look to the horizon
Never giving up.

Failure is only a learning step
Nothing happens
That you can’t accept
Learn or forget.

Nothing To Write

Nothing to write, nothing to say
Just looking out
An absolutely beautiful, breathtaking day

Sorely Saddened By My Loss

Sorely saddened by my loss
So very hard to pay this cost
Of living life with those I love
Now gone, I pay the price
For loss of them in this life.


I’ll gladly pay that price again
For the years of love
I’ve been given
It’s priceless even though
I know
I’ll be sad down the road.

Saddened by my loss
Is a price I’ll gladly pay
To have had you in my life
Even if for just a day.

I Didn’t Know

Deer in snow ~ Photo by Patrice

When I didn’t know nor find
The thing that occupied my mind
I wandered thus
Took a bus, then a train
In hopes of finding a refrain
That would sing answers
To the questions I wondered
And not be all in vain.

The Hearts

October 17, 2018

The hearts of men and every woman
Beat, pound a melodic rhythm
Breath taken in, breathing out
Lungs expand and eyes look about
Fingers touch a soft, gentle ground
As feet run full speed all around.

All this done with not a thought
Of how to do it or where it starts
For life begins and only stops
When the end has come
And the heart, it stops.

Hearing The Reason

Hearing the reason
With no understanding

Going forward
I’ll know the answer
In the sweet bye and bye.

Feeling The Waves Of Magnitude

October 15, 2018

Waters Crashing - Photo by Patrice Clarkson

Feeling waves of magnitude
Washing thru me
Smacking in the face as it
Crashes over me.

Washing down to the ground
Ebbing back, coming forward
With sounds of thunder
Hitting high above and below me.

Stand, stand my ground
Wait til it dies down
Wth no more crashing
All around, round me.
